Message from the Chairman
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the website of the Australian Business Group in Abu Dhabi (AusBG).
AusBG was formed to bring together Australians engaged in business activities in Abu Dhabi. Its objectives are to provide a networking forum for members to gain knowledge of the business environment and to keep abreast of the fast developing economic and business opportunities. In doing so, AusBG seeks to contribute to the promotion of trade and investment between Australian and the UAE.
AusBG embraces many nationalities in addition to Australians and their links arise from their being employees, agents or joint venture partners of Australian firms. These regular business relationships increase in value beyond commercial and financial concerns. Many of our goals and objectives are common to all business groups but of particular interest to our membership is the expanding role of Australian interests in Abu Dhabi. With rapid expansion, we welcome increasing membership.
AusBG works very closely with the Australian Embassy in Abu Dhabi and the Australian Consulate-General in Dubai and the various State Government offices in Abu Dhabi and Dubai to ensure that Australian businesses currently in the region continue to succeed, and to ensure Australian businesses coming into the region are in a position to make well-informed decisions that will drive their success. In other words, a "Team Australia" approach is very much adopted and implemented.
We hope to enjoy your company at one of our many upcoming functions.
